A while ago I was given a single evening dose of mirtazapine 15mg while in hospital. Soon I was doing this sort of writhing thing in bed; it sort of felt like I needed to use my arms and legs to give myself a full-body rub-down. It was very odd and lasted for a couple hours before I finally fell asleep. Is there a scientific name for this, i.e. what would it show up as in the side effect profile of a drug? Unless of course I'm the only weirdo this has happened to..

Thank you
